What happened? I stopped measuring and recording my food. I eyeballed servings and then just kept eating.

I got too busy for exercise.

Finally the truth hit, I no longer fit the size I was Dec. 1st!

Feb. 8 update: I fit my clothes again, and I am in a smaller size than I was Dec. 1.

My health is good and I am enjoying exercising. Will try to add other kinds of exercises now that my knee is stronger.

May 10: After a short hiatus because of computer problems I got back on after kinks were fixed. Computer acted up again, and my DH surprised me with a new one for Mother's Day!

My Goals:
I will lose 40 lbs. by August 26, our 47th anniversary.

I will set monthly goals so that I can reach that mark.

I will be responsible and choose the right foods and exercise for my well-being.





My Program:
I will eat between 1200-1500 calories a day.

I will exercise at least 30minutes a day.

Feb. 8 update: I will exercise at least 60 minutes daily, even on my rest day, when I will move slower.

May 12th update:

I will exercise at least 100 min. a day.



Personal Information:
Living in Corallville, Ia, I find it hard to walk outside when it is really cold, as it makes my asthma worse. I will use my treadmill.

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. My husband and I care for our grand children during the week.

Although retired, I teach in an afterschool program.

Other Information:
I love to read. It's hard to list a favorite, so it'll be favorites for me! Love mystery and intrigue!

Reflect on your discouragement and you'll discover that it is a result of your commitment. You've already invested your time, your effort, your life. Soon, you'll reap the full reward of that investment. Let discouragement spur you on.

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
